Verifying the Unknown Pathogen Theory of COPD Progression

This would explain why my mother needed more and more supplemental oxygen as time went on. As the disease progressed, the pathogen continued proliferating, occupying more and more of her lung volume and leaving less and less lung volume for her to use for breathing thus the supplemental oxygen requirement had gone up and up and up.

Do Medications Actually Slow the Progress of COPD?

This all seemed very logical, especially since the medical industry had given me their opinion through 2 of their well-trained doctors which was, “we don’t know what causes COPD to progress. It’s a mystery.” They would then follow up with, “We do know these medications and treatments will slow the progress of COPD.”

This I seriously doubted since it was the pharmaceutical companies who had spent hundreds of millions of dollars developing these COPD medications who were then given the task of testing them to show they worked. Does this seem a little fishy to you because it sure does to me? Isn’t that like the fox watching the hen house?

Where are All the Alternative Treatments for COPD?

I had been researching COPD and emphysema since my mother’s diagnosis. There was very little in the way of alternative treatments for COPD or emphysema. Once I realized that this disease progression was quite possibly the result of some unknown pathogen proliferating in the lungs, I began looking in other areas of alternative treatments. I was looking for research done on other diseases that I thought I might be able to apply to my mother’s emphysema and COPD.

I eventually found Dr. Kenneth Hunter, a Microbiologist and Cancer Researcher at the University of Nevada School of Medicine in Reno. Dr. Hunter was treating cancer by first putting patients on a very restrictive diet.

This diet was not calorie-restrictive but “content” restrictive. By that I mean, Dr. Hunter eliminated all sugar from the diet including fruit, honey, molases and anything else with a sweet flavor. He also eliminated all grains from the diet like bread, cereal and pasta since they are converted to sugar quickly in the body. Even whole grain bread was eliminated because of its high glycemic load. For a quick understanding of glycemic load take a look at the article below from the Harvard School of Public Health.

This left only meats, fish and vegetables. Dr. Hunter stated that cancer was a pathogen and that this pathogens’ food supply was sugar. He said that each cancer cell had more than 90 receptors for sugar. The diet he developed, essentially starved these cancer cells.

I started thinking, if cancer is a pathogen and this diet starves it, and since I was starting to believe the disease progression of COPD might be the result of a pathogen, then this diet should also starve this pathogen growing in my mother’s lungs. Well, it made sense logically but I was skeptical since in my desperate situation, I thought maybe I was filling in too many blanks with nothing but circumstantial evidence in an effort to support this pathogen theory.

Realizing that “the proof is in the pudding,”I immediately started my mother and I on Dr. Hunter’s diet hoping for some positive results! I figured we had nothing to lose. My mother was going to die unless I did something other than depend on these drugs and nebulizer treatments.

COPD Recovery Begins

It took about 10 days before we had transitioned completely to Dr. Hunter’s diet. The amazing thing for me was two weeks later when I noticed my mother’s first improvement since her diagnosis! It was a subtle improvement but it was a giant milestone in my eyes!

My mother would always get up in the morning after she smelled the coffee I was brewing. By the time she walked out of her bedroom, across the dining room and into the kitchen she would be gasping for air while on 4 liters of supplemental oxygen.

This day she was in no distress when she arrived in the kitchen. I was so thrilled when I saw these improvements, I can’t even describe the feeling but I was energized realizing there was a strong possibility that my mother’s COPD progression was, in fact, the result of a pathogen that had entered her lungs through cigarette smoking. Maybe the progression of COPD was not this big mystery the doctors thought it was after all.

No wonder the doctors’ prescription drugs and treatments did not stop the disease progression. They didn’t know what was causing this disease progression and it didn’t seem like they had spent much time trying to figure out this big mystery either. Now with a little bit of thought and logic and a change to a restrictive diet, my mother was showing her first signs of improvement since her diagnosis two and a half years earlier!

Complete Recovery from COPD

From then on I noticed small incremental improvements in my mother’s condition every week! During this period I added a number of supplements each with its own function in the healing process.

High quality supplements restored the immune system, amplified the immune response, stripped away the protective protein covering present on every pathogen, alkalized the body, reduced inflammation (one of the two primary symptoms of emphysema), and one of a cycled set of 4 anti-pathogenic supplements designed to systematically kill the weakened pathogen.

There were other supplements with less definitive purposes like CoQ10 but all were included for their specific healing effects.

An example of one of the supplements I used in reversing my mother’s emphysema was beta glucan which amplifies the immune response. Here is a good article regarding the effects of beta glucan on chronic disease.

Seventeen months after starting the restrictive diet she had completely recovered! She no longer needed any supplemental oxygen, she had re-gained the 26 pounds she had lost since her diagnosis, she ate full meals and slept through the night!

Once again, she seemed like the mom we had lost 15 years earlier when she began taking statin drugs for cholesterol and other drugs for dementia and osteoporosis. She was now off of almost all of her medications only leaving Keppra for seizures and a heart medication which I knew we would have her off of soon.

I did not take her off of her medications. I put her on the restrictive diet I borrowed from Dr. Hunter and verified through Dr. Fuhrman and Dr. Pescatore, and gave her specific nutritional supplements which started her return to optimal health.

One by one I added a list of supplements each with their own specific function in either killing this pathogen that I was still not sure even existed, or returning her body to optimal health.

  1. Thanks for your research and for posting these articles, Greg. It helps tremendously to understand how the disease progresses and what it takes to stop it. There is no other place that has this valuable information and I look forward to reading each one. Keep them coming.

  2. I will certainly do so. Thank you for your kind comments.

  3. After a ton of research, finally somebody to give me hope. Thank you so much.

    1. Here is the untold story: His mother is dead. She died August, 2009...just 8 months after his first book came out. It should have been his last book. He talks about her spirometry test, but never gives her fev #. People who actually have emphysema would be more than interested in that number since that is what actually puts you into stage 1-4 category. Greg's poor mother died in hospice after a lengthy illness as stated in her orbit. He may have made her more comfy by giving her better food and good supps, but that is not the name of the scam, the book that he continues to dupe people with. Sadly there is no cure for emphysema as of yet. He needs to come clean and let people know that his mother has been dead for over 6 years. For example, page 16 of his third edition says that his mom 'loves' garage sales....should be 'loved' garage sales. He keeps forgetting to mention her passing. He also had no proof of reversal of emphysema. No test. He kicked me off his page for cornering him about proof and he just told me that I have to assume that she was cured. Really? I am suffering from this horrible disease, so I will assume nothing. He was interviewed on a radioblog recently. He referred to a man on his page, a singer, who is doing quite well. Well, this 'singer' does not have emphysema. Also, talked about a man with asthema cured himself. Well, that is not emphysema either. So, even though he says some 7000 people have cured themselves, his only to references are those above mentioned people. Really? Sad story. Two cases that are not patients with emphysema.

    2. I would hope he could do a little better than that. He kicked me off his page on Jan. 29, 2015 because I pushed him into a corner for proof of cure. That is when he told me that I must assume...really? since when is that scientific? a test? He kicked me off his page, blocked me, and reported to his 12 people on his page at the time, that he told me to go fight Isis. He is a sad excuse of a man who also brings our God into his writings. Not funny. Again sad. He is having a real problem with me these days as he is now telling people on his page that I work for the medical board of Minnesota....oh, I also work for the FBI and am using their computers illegally by getting personal information about people on his page and spreading it around. The example he gave was that I said someone was on food stamps and she was humiliated. My favorite newest writing by greg on his page: I single handedly have scared off, read:

      Greg Miller
      We had a lady named Darlene in this group who would attack anyone who let us know they were following the protocols and were getting better. She would ream them. Her name is Darlene and she is a psychopath so watch out for her. She works for the medical board in Minnesota. Anyway, unfortunately she chased out over 100 people. Many of them had recovered or were very near a full recovery. I had to kick Darlene and her dog out of the group. She uses many aliases. She is currently harassing people in my COPD Focus Group. She doesn't realize it yet but she is being tracked and not by us. If you have been harassed by this woman let me know.

      Greg Miller I guess Darlene is pro-medicine. I would be too if any of the drugs did anything other than mask symptoms temporarily while the disease blazes on . She has even searched out people and harassed them. 3 of the people now in my focus group have been repeatedly harassed by Darlene.

      Greg Miller I think people realize there are very few options for recovery. Medicine is certainly not one of them!

  4. Greg Miller Freda, do you understand that these people left the group? How would they tell their stories now? Do you understand that after being harassed by this nutbag Darlene they left the group and had to block her. One lady that told of her recovery was harassed by Darlene and left the group after Darlene announced to the group that this lady was on food stamps. She was humiliated.

    1. apparently greg does not understand that although a person leaves a page, his comments do not go with him/her. I find it hard to believe that a few hundred people went thru the page and removed all of their comments before leaving the page.... really.....funny......

  5. Herbs play an important role in this natural healing strategy. Here are a portion of the best Emphysema Herbal Treatment that are endorsed as a solution for emphysema.

  6. Although there are recommend prescriptions that have been established for the treatment of emphysema, numerous of Emphysema Natural Treatment is accessible that might decrease the symptoms of this condition.

  7. i want to use this medium to appreciate the admin of this page for allowing me to share my story.i believe that this will help others going through what i went through over the years to find a cure like i did. i was diagnosed of COPD which i suffered for so many years, despite the different English medications i took in order to find a cure, it didn't work. i started having complications resulting from those English medications i was taking over the years. as a result of these complications from my drugs, i went in search for a natural cure where i saw a testimony of someone who suffered the same sickness i was going through and the person got his cure through herbal medication, then, i followed the email he shared and i contacted the doctor, today, my story is now a testimony, in case you are going through same sickness, you may contact the doctor through his email:
